Unique issues for women
In many cases today, wives seeking to end their marriage with their husband tend to try to find divorce attorneys who work with women only. Unfortunately, there are not many lawyers who work primarily with women and understand their unique issues and challenges. Instead, most lawyers will work with clients who are either men or women. You need a firm that is about divorce lawyers for women.
As any competent divorce attorney will admit, women and mothers present unique challenges when dealing with custody, support (both child support and spousal support) and property distribution. These unique challenges must be presented in a way that is appealing to your family law judge in order to avoid the crushing disappointment that comes from losing custody of your children or potentially receiving support that is inadequate to meet your needs.
Even in recent years, according to Legal Momentum, a women’s legal defense and education fund, judges may be biased against women in their divorce. Incredibly, according to Legal Momentum, judges will show their bias against women who make claims of domestic violence against their wives.
California requires that judges must take into account domestic violence as a critical factor in deciding custody battles. But despite that requirement, and a similar requirement in 40 states, Legal Momentum has found that “judges do no want to hear about domestic abuse, discount its seriousness, find it too infrequent or too remote in time to be relevant or discount it because they believe it did not affect the children.”
One very important thing to remember in your divorce is to choose your divorce lawyer and their team wisely. Many Orange County lawyers handle a variety of different types of law, such as criminal law or real estate as well as family and divorce law.
Be sure to choose a lawyer who specializes in divorce law and works primarily with women. A lawyer who’s experienced in family law will obtain a better settlement because they know California family law nuances and all of the local lawyers and judges. This experience will be crucial in handling all aspects of your case.
In addition, you may need to hire experts, especially if your family has complicated financial assets or if you have children and are in a difficult custody battle. For example, you may need to bring on an experienced financial planner for assistance in negotiating your settlement or a seasoned child custody evaluator to help with your custody battle.
